It's not even confirmed now. The title is making a huge assumption.

Well, this is new.

Not even close to true. There's still things that can be functionally put on the gamepad that aren't gimmicks. The gamepad was amazing on WWHD, and it was completely none intrusive. Same with Deus Ex. Evolutionary concepts can be done. The issue was that motion controls aren't one of them.

But those things could very well still be optional, having a faster way to access the menu is nice and all, but not for another 60 bucks. 

I'm now filled with determination.

that's good news. Gyro only wouldve killed this game imo

I agree that the gamepad is overpriced to, don't get me wrong. But that's an issue that will easily go away as the tech gets cheaper to make. And it's much more than just having a faster way to access the menu. 

Well, this is new.

I love how everyone is rejoicing that they don't need to use motion controls. And yet that Wii U pad is soooo necessary...

dont even know why they are bothering with motion controls. have they not seen what happened to lair?


-"The way it uses the GamePad is really starting to feel good," Miyamoto said about the new Star Fox.

-Miyamoto says that he is working on and playing the new Star Fox every day and jokes that his hands hurt as a result.
-Describes the basic gameplay: Cinematic (3rd person) view on the big screen, cockpit view on the gamepad. You are meant to split between the two while you are playing.
-I like to create gameplay mechanics more than I do stories. The story might not be too different from past “Star Fox” games, but the gameplay mechanics are going to feel very different because of the two-screen system of the Wii U with the GamePad and TV screen. It’ll make for a very fun and unique way to play.

-"One of the questions that we often get is 'How is the GamePad being used in any particular game?'" Miyamoto said. "Star Fox is a game where having two screens is really important and it works really well."

-Speaking of "Star Fox Wii U," Miyamoto also detailed a few interesting gameplay features for the upcoming space exploration title. When asked how the Wii U's Gamepad fits into the equation, Miyamoto said it allows the experience to feature interactive cinematics that switch between the tablet and TV screen. "Star Fox Wii U" will have cinematics "where you're still able to look around and play it," he says.

the controls sounds good however i hope there a bit more to it than flying and a few tank sequences. It is 2015 after all.



Nice to have the option, i would use traditional controls but my young daughter would be more comfortable with motion controls, like she is with Mario Kart 8.
